Eastleach our home in the Cotswolds countryside

Come and press your Eastleach apples!

On Sunday 14th October everyone is invited to from the village with friends and family to bring your apples to be pressed for juice.

We will have all the kit ready in the Village Hall from 2.30pm for a couple of hours.

What do you need to bring?


These need to have been picked for two weeks at least to let them mature. This means the juice is sweeter and doesn’t go brown and nasty.
Eaters or cookers and even pears all make great juice, and for cider the mix doesn’t matter.

You can keep them in a box in a dry spot until then, and we can take out any grubby bits on the day.

Juice containers

Milk cartons make great juice containers, so keep a few clean ones and bring them along.

Need a hand picking?

George and the boys are happy to help with picking if needed so ping him an email if the tree is a bit tall!
Juice or Cider?

Juice is great to drink and even better if you’ve pressed it yourself. It will keep in the fridge or freezer.

Good clear and fizzy cider is also easy to make and George can help with kits from Mr Arkwright in Highworth. Again, ping George an email if you are interested.

We look forward to a fun day, and lots of apples being put to good use. We will even put on some tea and apple cake too!
